I had an Email I didn’t expect today. It came from a man called Dave. Dave works for the European Podcast Awards and he wrote to tell me that The Dan Life Coach Podcast has been nominated in the personality section. Those that know me will be fully aware that I have little or no personality, so I am guessing it is based on the other experts that assist me in making the podcast. Imagine their little joyful faces if they were to win an award. Just imagine. Gwaaaan.
So, get your fingers out, ignore the fact the voting page may be in German, French, Polish or whatever. The stars are universally known. Get your vote in and make a few idiots happy. Happy idiots are safer idiots. Never forget that…
Late last night, I had an epiphany. While many waste away their hours sleeping, I was hard at work creating some unheralded genius. This will, in very little time, make me millions of pounds. I will try to continue to be friendly with some of you, but when I am rich it will be hard to find the time to spend on others. I apologise if you are one of the worthless people I no longer choose to speak to.
Last week, nature relented and offered me the chance to sit in a lush green garden and soak up the infrequent sunshine, drink in the ingenuity of creation’s own masterpiece and take a closer look at those creatures that often live amongst us unseen. My attention settled on a song thrush, confidently perched on electricity lines that conveniently circumvent the oasis of tranquility that I found myself resting. His song was loud, proud and a much varied musical homage befitting the purity of both the moment and the environment.
